At a concert on Friday night, Wycleaf Jean took a shot at Sean Penn. While we would all probably like to take a shot at Sean Penn for many things, Wycleaf was taking one because of the way Sean Penn called out Wycleaf when Wycleaf announced that he would be running for President of Haiti.
At the time, Sean said something like he thought the whole thing was for show and that Haiti needed a President who would actually spend time in Haiti and had spent time in Haiti rather than just trying to garner publicity.
Well, on Friday night, Wycleaf finally responded and said, "I got a message for Sean Penn: Maybe he ain't see me in Haiti because he was too busy sniffing cocaine."
Well, actually he did not really say it, but rather sang it. He probably thought it would be easier to get away with if he sang it.
Of course Sean responded but with a strange PR twist thing to it and a dig right back at Wycleaf.
"Mr. Jean is clearly unfamiliar with the physical demands put upon volunteers in Haiti. As aid workers there, the notion of depleting the body’s immune system thru the use of illicit drugs is ludicrous. More specifically, J/P Haitian Relief Organization (a.k.a. JPHRO) has a ZERO tolerance policy for any and all illegal drugs," said Mara Buxbaum. "As the leader of this organization, Sean Penn has not only set this policy, but adheres to it. That Mr. Jean would make such a false accusation is reckless and saddening, but not surprising."
